About Asphalt

What percentage of roads in the nation are asphalt?

  • About 94 percent of the nation's roads and highways are surfaced with asphalt.

What is Asphalt made of and how is it made?

  • Asphalt pavement is usually approximately 95 percent aggregate, which could be stone, sand, or gravel, and 5 percent asphalt cement as a binder. The binder is a product of oil refining and acts to glue the aggregates together.
  • Asphalt pavement is made by aggregate and asphalt being heated, combined with the recycled material and mixed together. Then we load the hot pavement material into trucks and take it out to the site.

What else is asphalt used for?

  • Asphalt is also used to pave cattle feed lots, poultry house floors, barn floors, and greenhouse floors. Asphalt not only provides an all-weather platform, it also provides protection against disease from waste materials. Asphalt is easy to clean and prevents pollution from getting into water supplies.

What are the benefits of Asphalt?

  • Non-Corrosive by salt
  • Flexible

Recycled Asphalt

  • Asphalt pavement is the most recycled material in America and annually we recycle 70 million tons of asphalt pavements every year, more than the combined total of glass, paper, plastic, and aluminum combined.

Is Asphalt harmful to the environment?

  • Asphalt is NOT a toxic environmental hazard it is insoluble and does not react with water. Its use is not limited to roads. Hot mix asphalt has been used to line surfaces of fish hatchery ponds and community water reservoirs. The Metropolitan Water District of Southern California has used hot mix asphalt liners in its reservoirs for over forty years.

How Thick is Asphalt on the roads?

  • Thickness of asphalt is engineered. You have to look at what kind of stresses you put on the pavement, trucks vs. cars, and other factors such as soil conditions and climate. It also depends on what materials you intend to use in the asphalt and what materials might be present in the lower layers of the pavement. All these considerations are combined to obtain the pavement thickness.

How long after Asphalt has been placed can it be driven on?

  • Asphalt pavements can be built and maintained fast, thereby minimizing traffic delays and long-term lane closures. Asphalt pavements can be built at night and opened again in time for rush hour the next morning.
  • You can drive on a new asphalt pavement the same day it has been placed. Concrete, on the other hand, generally takes much more time to cure before you can allow any amount of automobile or truck traffic on it.

How does salt affect ashphalt?

  • Asphalt is not affected by salt and other de-icing agents.
